From Oct. 21 to 22, 10 blocks of the Chestnut Hill neighbourhood will be dedicated to Harry Potter-related festivities, including Hogsmeade shops and a Tri-Wizard Straw Maze. Attendees can even get to the festival via the Hogwarts Express (30th Street Station)! Harry and friends will be aboard certain trains to greet you and take you to the fun.
Sip on Butterbeer, take Defense Against the Dark Arts classes, get sorted into a House, and more. Chestnut Hill College, which looks like its own Hogwarts, will also be holding a Harry Potter conference (Oct. 20 to 21), adding more magic to it all.
We're going to go plan our trips to Philly now.
